days of nursing intervention
the patient will be able to
reduce risk of infections.
Which of your diagnoses are Priority using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: Impaired Physical
Mobility according to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, physiologic needs should satisfy first, so
that the patient should satisfy this to satisfy her physiologic needs.
Evaluation: Were any of your short term expected outcomes met during your shift? None of the
short-term expectations were met during my shift.
How might you revise your care plan next time to achieve at least one outcome during your
shift? I plan on improving my care plan next time by monitoring my patients’ recovery process
keenly and offering effective ways to have my patient be able to decrease edema and promotes
venous return.
Medical Diagnosis
1. The patient diagnosed with an Unspecified Displaced Fracture of Surgical Neck of Right
Humerus the pieces of bone at the fracture site are separated and shifted out of position.
This type of fracture typically requires surgery. Proximal humerus fractures are
diagnosed by a thorough physical examination and diagnostic imaging (Stanley, n.d.).
HEALTH HISTORY, ASSESSMENT AND NURSING DIAGNOSIS
12
2. Humerus fractures are caused by direct harm to the arm shoulder. About 20% of humerus
fractures are displaced and mostly occur in baseball games. Such type of fracture requires
a more intrusive treatment like surgery
3. A subsequent encounter is experienced when an active treatment of the patient’s injury
has been offered, and the patient is now receiving routine care for the injury in the
healing process (Deter, 2006). An example is medical ex-rays to monitor the healing
process of the fracture
4. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airway demonstrated by various recurring
symptoms and bronchospasm. Common symptoms of asthma include; coughing,
wheezing, short breaths, and chest tightness.
5. A major depressive disorder is a mental disorder demonstrated by two weeks or more of
low mood. It is accompanied by loss of interest in several things, low self-esteem, pain
with no clear cause and low energy. Patients with depression often hear or see things that
are unseen by other people. They affect patients negatively as some end up committing
suicide (Deter, 2006).
